An overly-zealous animal rescue group takes the law into their own hands by stealing jilted dogs from abusive owners.

Prior to the making of this film, I initially intended to focus on a "simple" story of animal welfare. But sometimes things don't work out exactly as planned. Instead, I stumbled upon an even more intriguing story of societal neglect, economic despair, morality and self-fulfillment.

I recognize the controversy surrounding the issues presented in the film and have purposely left it to you, the viewer, to formulate your own opinion.
